What Humans Perceive as Time and Space are just Facets of Energy

Did you ever wondered if what we perceive as Time really exist, or is it just an illusion? Did you also ever wondered if what we perceive as Space really exist, or is it also just an illusion? Did you ever wondered from which entities our Universe is actually composed? Would you be surprised to find out that the Universe is actually composed of only one entity? This book analyzes paradoxes and peculiarities in the science of Physics today, and arrives at the following revolutionary conclusion: Time, Space and the Electric Charge are just forms (or facets) of Energy, as Mass is already accepted and recognized as a form of Energy, following the introduction of Einstein’s Special Relativity Theory. This boils down to another revolutionary conclusion: The Universe is composed of only one entity, Energy !!! This conclusion is based on attempts to explain several unanswered questions, peculiarities and paradoxes in the science of Physics today. These attempts use analysis which is based only on the acceptable nowadays Physics theories. For example: it suggests an extension to Einstein’s General Relativity Theory, to include in it also the Electric Charge entity, and not only the Mass entity. These attempts use only thinking experiments, logic and reason, as the tools for this analysis. Because the bottom line conclusions of this book, are very surprising conclusion, thinking experiments, logic and reason might not be enough to convince the Physicists community, that these conclusions are valid, being the logic and reason utilized, as sound as they can be. Thus, the book proposes also physical experiments to support these conclusions. These experiments require means and funds which are beyond the reach of the author of this book. Thus, the author of this book hopes that this book will bring about the implementation of these experiments, which will provide the required validation to the theory provided in this book. If these experiments will be executed, and their outcomes will be successful, in providing validity to the theory presented in this book, then, new surprising insights will emerge, relating our understanding of our Universe, and the Existence in general, and also new important technological breakthroughs might be achieved. For example, this book predicts that Newton’s second law of motion (F=ma) might not be always applicable. It might be true only for very massive bodies, such as planets, or uncharged bodies. If this prediction will be validated, this might provide means to overcome Gravity, and design much more efficient propulsion means. There are indications, that Nicola Tesla’s work addressed this subject, but its work is not available to the public, because it is kept out of reach from the public, by the USA authorities, because of reasons which are presented as National Security reasons. If the theories presented in this book will be accepted as viable, this might help to start new endeavors in this exiting fields of human knowledge. Also, this book states, that the origin of most of the mysterious Dark Energy might be from Electromagnetism, and this book also states, that our environment is continuously filled with Traceable Energy which is a result of a continuous conversion of Dark Energy into Traceable Energy. But this can not be usually detected, because also Traceable Energy is continuously converted to Dark Energy, which implies, that on the average, no Energy seems to disappear, or being created. But if the theories presented in this book will be validated, it might initiate an attempt to design a technological mean to detect only the Traceable Energy which is continuously created from the Dark Energy, which might be a new source of Clean, green Energy.

System 3 Thinking

We’re told to aim for slower, logical, system 2 thinking rather than fast, intuitive system 1 thinking. System 3 Thinking asks how much we actually check claims given as the result of logical thought. Are those claiming to represent the underdog really just pushing the same old argument from authority? Is Socrates really a good role model? The book doesn’t have all the answers, but may give you something to think about and I hope help you in your quest to make a difference in what you do.

Meet Stephen K Lee

Following a PhD in Mathematical Quantum Theory, Stephen worked as a self employed computer programmer, when his work included writing compilers and management training software. His books are an exploration of various topics loosely related to economics – why aren’t we living the life of ease promised by Keynes in the 1930s? – whilst trying to avoid the simplistic idea that everything would be OK if only ‘our’ group were in power. He lives in Oxford.

Some Mistakes of Darwin and a Programmer’s Theory of Life

Darwin’s theory of evolution has been widely regarded as one of the greatest accomplishments of science. Except for a few individuals, most scientists have dismissed the issues that have crept up in the last century related to and in opposition to the theory of evolution. However, developments in molecular biology and genetics have failed to address some of the original concerns with the theory and also exposed even more significant flaws that should not be overlooked.

The evolution debate has been raging on the outskirts of academia for two centuries, and the sides have never been further apart than they are now. “Science versus religion” and “evolution versus creationism” was what the audience heard for a long time. In the twentieth century, God was brought down into the fighting pits of scientific society to duke it out with Charles Darwin, and for the longest time, it seemed he had lost the match for good. In recent times, though, God has put his gloves back on and seems to have managed to insert himself back into the debate.

Or has he? Has anything really changed in this debate, which is as old as debates themselves? Did evolution change, or science, or God himself? What is true from the grandiose claims of those who claim to have resurrected God by virtue of their arguments? And what truth is there in the words of the scientists who claim to have buried him?

Some Mistakes of Darwin goes back to the beginning of evolutionary thought and verifies every claim made by Darwin and his successors. Everything is put to the test, and nothing is off limits. No claim is accepted without verification and no argument is beyond questioning. Travel from the birth of genetics and molecular biology, through the advances in software engineering, to the far ends of space and time and beyond. By the last chapter, the book goes full circle and reaches the same conclusion as some philosophers of old have, from the same facts but a different perspective, arguing from science, not from scripture, for a new theory of life.

No Lack of Sunshine

A Hard Sci-Fi Novel With a Hopeful Twist. “The air might be poisonous, but at least the sun always shines.” There was a reason why Earth colonized this place. Everything is familiar, consistent — consistency is a welcome reprieve, and Ava’s planet has plenty of it. The fifth to be born among the stars, Ava sets forth to make a name for herself despite this obscure claim to fame. Being raised by emotionless, loveless robots doesn’t exactly merit a natural flair for spontaneity or empathy, but Ava makes do. At the very least, she tries to. Her life is here on South Island, where the sea represents freedom and the air symbolizes a dangerous kind of thrill. But now, her existence is under threat. The autonomous supply ship fails to deliver. With only a few weeks’ worth of oxygen left, Ava and her beau must embark on a journey to retrieve more. However, what once was a straightforward quest slowly morphs into one rife with ambush. Something has affected the robots’ advanced processors, causing them to spiral into a fruitless quest for an artifact that may not even exist. And the more they wait, the more Ava’s in peril.

The Tapestry of Reality, Threads of Consciousness

New Edition. “All matter originates and exists only by virtue of the existence of consciousness. The mind is the matrix of all matter.” —Max Planck, originator of Quantum Mechanics, Nobel Laureate. We perceive, conceptualize, and interact with what we call “reality” through our consciousness, and consciousness is the mystery of mysteries. Consciousness is the thing most directly known to us, and, in the assessment of scholars, from philosophers to physicists, it is the only thing directly known to us. The vast tapestry of the energy-matter “reality” that surrounds us seems far less mysterious, even though less directly known. Scientific research has provided remarkable new windows into concepts of reality, revealing it to be composed of an infinite number of threads of consciousness. “The world is a construct of our mind’s sensations, perceptions, memories. It is convenient to regard it as existing objectively on its own. But it certainly does not.” —Erwin Schrödinger, Nobel Laureate “The so-called miraculous powers of a great master are a natural accompaniment to his exact understanding of subtle laws that operate in the inner cosmos of consciousness.” —Yogananda (A.D. 1893-1952) This book contains an exploration of consciousness and its most advanced abilities through accounts of explorer M.G. Hawking’s experiences in an ancient village deep in the vast frozen fortress of the Himalayas. Explore first-hand narratives of demonstrations of psychokinetic and extrasensory abilities, and in-depth descriptions of the esoteric knowledge that enabled the attainment of such exceptional powers. Advanced abilities of consciousness enable a person to influence a physical system without direct physical interaction, a capacity increasing recognized in the academic and scientific communities as part of the field of human ability. Although widely acknowledged in India, Nepal, Tibet and various Himalayan areas of Asia, paranormal abilities have in the Western World been largely disregarded by the general population. However, in the scientific community the perception is very different. For example, the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research program pursues an agenda of studying the interaction of human consciousness with the physical world to enable a better understanding of the role of consciousness in the establishment of “reality.” Results of the Princeton experimental studies, along with many similar research projects both private and governmental, here and abroad, have established paranormal abilities as operating at both the macroscopic level (using large-scale apparatus) and at the atomic level (using computerized random number generators). Although the test subjects in general have no real idea of how to focus their consciousness to influence the outcomes, over thousands of experimental runs the results have been far beyond chance expectation, demonstrating that subjects can influence outcomes that deviate significantly from the statistical norm, often by a factor of several billion-to-one. For those familiar with quantum physics, these results come as no surprise. “Atoms or elementary particles themselves are not real; they form a world of potentialities or possibilities rather than one of things or facts.” —Werner Heisenberg, Nobel Laureate As entertaining as it is enlightening, this is an incomparable book for anyone seeking enlarged knowledge and personal power. 2022 Edition, Nine Book Exploratory Anthology, e-reader page count 265 (estimated, actual count varies depending on the reading device used). A Kindle Unlimited Book. For more information, please see the ‘Look Inside’ feature on the book’s Amazon page. Thank you.
